  • Applications of time series analysis to geophysical data 

    Chave, Alan D. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1980-06)
    This thesis consists of three papers applying the techniques of time series analysis to geophysical data. Surface wave dispersion along the Walvis Ridge, South Atlantic Ocean, is obtained by bandpass filtering the ...
  • The crustal structure and subsidence history of aseismic ridges and mid-plate island chains 

    Detrick, Robert S. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1978-09)
    This thesis consists of three papers examining problems related to the crustal structure, isostasy and subsidence history of aseismic ridges and mid-plate island chains. Analysis of gravity and bathymetry data across the ...
  • The gravity field and plate boundaries in Venezuela 

    Folinsbee, Robert Allin (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1972-01)
    Free-air and simple Bouguer anomaly maps of the Venezuelan continental margin (from 60°W to 72°W and from 7°N to 13°N) are presented. The major features of the free-air map are: the large lows associated with the deep ...
  • Mechanisms of heat transport through the floor of the equatorial Pacific Ocean 

    Crowe, John (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-02)
    The equatorial Pacific heat flow low, a major oceanic geothermal anomaly centered on the equatorial sediment bulge, was investigated using deeply penetrating heat flow probes (6-11 meters penetration) within three ...
  • Ocean bottom seismic scattering 

    Dougherty, Martin E. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-08)
    Seismic studies of the oceanic crust, both experimental and theoretical, often assume a flat seafloor and laterally homogeneous crust. This is done regardless of the appearance in seismic data of obvious effects due to ...
  • A study of the seismic structure of upper oceanic crust using wide-angle reflections 

    Rohr, Kristin Marie Michener (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-01)
    The lateral homogeneity of oceanic crust on the scale of a seismic experiment is a condition that most methods of seismic interpretation depend on. Whether this condition is in fact true is largely unknown and only ...
  • The tectonic evolution of the North Central Caribbean plate margin 

    Goreau, Peter David Efran (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1981-01)
    The results of a detailed geophysical survey are used in conjunction with all available information in a study of the tectonic development of the Cayman Trough and the Greater Antilles Ridge. This development is connected ...
